9:02 pm
money. i'll go within the board resolution before you today. i will talk a little bit about the transaction documents which as you know with these sorts of transactions there's a lot of different documents to review. i'll describe those. i will go through some disclosure q&a which would we know with our commission which we found helpful and i'll share those with you and then that transaction schedule. so this item supervisors, is what we are calling our 2016 series c water revenue bonds. that authorization before you is for up to $295 million and will be sold on a competitive basis. the bonds will be for up to 30 years term and they will have a stick straight and right now if we were issued those funds rate the rate would be about 3.6%. or so. these bonds will be repaid from water enterprise revenues. the bonds also
9:03 pm
interestingly will be certified as green bonds and green bonds as you may know, are meant to provide a environmental benefits and this will actually be our third series of green bonds that we've issued. the first two are in our water-sorry-wwastewater and power enterprise so this'll be the first green bonds certified green bond series for our water enterprise. the bonds will be issued as taxable as opposed to tax exempt. we are typically i'm sure familiar with tax-exempt bond issued. this one is taxable and that is how the irs looks at a regional water system get we have some private entities that are plugged into our water water system and our wholesale customers stanford university and a private company cal water are two of our all-star customers the iris deems those sales to those entities as private activity and that's why
9:04 pm
his particular bond transaction represents the taxable portion of our overall water system improvement program. the $4.7 billion program. these bonds were originally authorized by this board in 2010. this is the transaction now authorization to actually issue the debt. here is the source of the uses good to enter 95-up to two and $95 million the vast majority of these funds will be used to pay off our commercial paper. as a reminder, supervisors we use commercial paper program as a way to pre-fund project expense at a very low interest rate. right now those interest rates are right under 1%. so it's very tax cost advantageous for us use our commercial paper program. then we roll them into these longer fixed rate debt series. that's traditionally how we issue our debts. the rest of the funds from this issue will fund additional project monies from our program which will be issuing debt over the next couple of years and we are anticipating wrapping up with this in 2019 just a few
9:05 pm
more years. a few more years for that program. the rest of the funds will be used for capitalized interest and [inaudible]. in terms of the resolution before you today, supervisors, we got again the authorization to issue the debt. we are coveting promises, covenants to our bondholders related to our water indenture and we are reaffirming those. we are bringing forward to you the form of bond dockets with a walk-through in a moment and describe those in more detail. then this resolution before you a prices the execution of the transaction to our general manager. so again, there's typically many documents with these types of transactions. i will walk through those with you. the preliminary official statement is the largest of those documents that for the
9:06 pm
main disclosure document that describes who the sf puc is good what are water enterprises who are customers are and how we will use the money. the supplemental indenture is our agreement the basic agreement between the puc and bondholders and it talks about the bond details in the terms and provisions of the transaction. notice of intention to sell is a notification to the financial community related to this pending sale. the official notice of sale is a notice to underwriters regarding the terms for this competitive transaction. a bond purchase contract, we won't be using that we include it just in case we have to switch to a negotiated transaction. all we include a form of that document should we need to renegotiate but as i mentioned earlier this would be a competitive sell. then the continuing disclosure certificate it in our tos and describes our ongoing requirement to disclose and report to the investment community. the next couple of slides just talk about some big
9:07 pm
picture q&a related to disclosure and her commissioners felt this was hopeful for them so that's why we're showing this to you to get again to reiterate purpose of the debt to fund our previously authorized projects. the structure of the bonds, it's up to 30 years senior lien long-term fixed rate debt to no variable bonds here. the bonds will be sold competitively. the repayment will be from water enterprise revenues. how much debt is a water enterprise currently have outstanding speakers' 4.1 billion. just as an aside, we have full customers that fund about two thirds of this cost. b is worse about one third. how will bonds impact rates. one rates will increase approximately 3 dollars but again about one dollar of that is shared with our retail customers here in san francisco and the whole also customers will pay about two dollars about three dollars. we don't integrate any negative impact related to our readings and the

9:18 pm
from dph. welcome he was good morning greg wagner chief financial officer from department of public health. the resolution before you relates to a pilot program in the states 1115 medicaid waiver which is a program that authorizes funding for healthcare services for county governments including our own. there is a a pilot in the waiver call the whole person care pilot program. those are federal funds that are available to counties to implement programs that improve quarter nation of services to targeted populations with high health needs. where we are right now that san francisco has submitted an application that this was a joint hopper effort by the department of public health, department of homelessness and supportive housing, human services agency, and a number of other not-for-profit partners in the community. where we stand right now is that the one of the requirements by the state is
9:19 pm
that in order for them to negotiate with us on grant awarding they need approval from the governing body of the county authorizing us to enter into an agreement with them. so we are here with a resolution asking for your authority to do that. our application is currently in process get the next up would be we have a back-and-forth with the state about our application. if we are able to get to a point where we received an award then we would bring that program back again to the board of supervisors prior to appropriation. so this is a resolution authorizing us to agree with the state but it is not an acceptance of her appropriation of the funds for the program. >> okay. colleagues, any questions i know? supervisor
9:20 pm
tang spears thank you. nice to see you mr. wyden. i'm wondering if you could describe if you're able to be successful in obtaining or securing the funding for this pilot program. what is the difference between what occurs under this pilot and what happens under current practices. basically, why would this pilot make how we provide services more efficient? >> yes, thanks for the question. again, this is still in progress. we don't have a final agreement on it but the basic concept here is that when of the pushes the efforts, from both the federal and state governments and also county providers has been to try to look at vulnerable populations that receive services from a number of different government and nonprofit providers that can because of the historical nature of the system of care developed in some cases be fragmented. where a client is receiving care from various departments from outside providers. so the goal of the program is to establish a pilot
9:21 pm
that helps improve the coronation of all those services and they can much more seamless to the client in terms of how they are receiving services from the various programs and providers to the county did so this is very consistent with the direction that this city has been moving with our approaches including navigation centers, navigation services, entry into the system of care. at the core of this application there would be a number of things. some programmatic infrastructure but also be creating technology solution that would bring data from a number of different agencies into a single platform and create some standardization in terms of how all the different programs, different care coordination entities categorize and develop a treatment plan or a services
9:22 pm
plan for those individual. so it's really creating some infrastructure to strengthen our ability to coordinate all of these services into a single system of care for bone verbal populations. the target population for this group is the approximately 6700 homeless medicaid eligible individuals in san francisco. so this is very well aligned with all the efforts through the department of homelessness and supportive housing and it's helping us to create some infrastructure to make the next step on those journey possible. >> okay. so we are still there's still another piece that would potentially have to come back here and then what would you say in terms of timing if we were able to implement this pilot? >> yes, sure. the expected date for the state to respond to us is very soon and we should be
9:23 pm
hearing. we've had some initial commerce nations but we expect to be hearing from the state within the next month. and working on getting to a final agreement on the program for this so the most likely point for this to come back to the board would be as we go into the budget process and as we have clarity about these funds proposal for how to appropriate them through the budget to align with the other initiatives that come before you at that time. >> thank you. >> okay. thanks mr. wyden. no other questions will open this up to be public. anyone wish to comment on item 5? seeing none, public comment is closed. >>[gavel] >> i will make a motion than to send for this resolution to the full board with positive recommendation >> moved and seconded. we can take that without objection. >>[gavel] >> the clerk please call items six >> item number six ordinance amending the ministry of code regarding the toddler learning
9:24 pm
scholarship fund >> this item was sponsored by supervisor yee so i'll turn it over to him >> thank you chairman farrell. this is a thing of it worked on for a little while now and something that i feel crucial to our delivery of early education and spirit him. i just want to say invest in family-friendly policies and early care and education will always be one of my highest my worri researchers and studies have confirmed that the most critical time in brain development is from birth to age 3. having early education options outside of the home will always be a parents choice however the reality is that the top three reasons families seek infant and toddler care is because they are working, seeking work, or in school or training. all which are
9:25 pm
critical in order to maintain an income that allows families to live and thrive in san francisco. today, quality infant care costs are staggering , 2400 per month. that's nearly $29,000 per year. we create-we must create an investment system that only supports low income but also our middle income families who are struggling to survive and raise their families in the city. currently, there are more than 1650 infants and toddlers in the what we call san francisco 3c san francisco's wait list. we need to support children but we must focus some investment to the greatest in the which is in our city's youngest children. we are under serving infants and toddlers in every single
9:26 pm
district in san francisco. we need increased resources and other specialized strategies for further developing access to quality education for infants and toddlers. this early learning scholarship fund is a thoughtful and strategic approach that will be the vehicle to support the city's infant and toddlers. i want to say that it's not real complicated. this piece of legislation. it doesn't really two things. it provides what i call a bucket. when we start identifying funding in the future to support infant and toddler programs. and it also, number two, is asking the office of early care and education to start looking at -start looking at creating a program as we identify the funding that would be very
9:27 pm
similar hopefully, to a model that we would use which is the preschool for all program. the office of early care and education and first five are working to great a continuum of care for the children 0-5. but the biggest gap still remains for the infants and toddlers. the fund would allow families to return to work or continue their studies in order to provide better for their families. when children are learning in a healthy and quality environment and when families are able to provide our economic our economy grows. helping to support a cities infants and toddlers is an investment in a stronger san francisco. data is clear. the needs is far greater far to great them. our babies and toddlers can no longer wait to be an afterthought in citywide planning for families. so
9:28 pm
again-well not again but i really want to thank supervisors kane mar campos virchow sponsoring the legislation and i also want to thank my staff eric a bar who is been working on this piece of legislation for a while now. so i also want to note that you each have a copy of 22 providers that signed to zip support this legislation and a letter of support from the department status of women. but i believe we have somebody here from the department of status of women who can speak to the letter in in a second. so either any questions before i call up speakers?
9:29 pm
>> supervisor tang >> are we going to go over your amendment were later? >> yes. i can do that right now to have in the record? >> sure. >> basically, the sum of the amendment i am offering to the original language is on page 3 model line 5-6. this clarifies that the priority will be for parents of caregivers attending publicly funded schools but does not exclude parents attending other schools that are not public funded. such is golden gate hastings or one of them. the rules shall establish criteria that right prizes funding that supports parents and guardians within publicly funded colleges and universities in the city over those who attend other colleges and universities. then the second amendment would be in the next section, line six through 11. this should read,
9:30 pm
when 15 days after adopting an initial goals for the program under subsection d-one the office of early care and education cell summit submit a copy to the board of supervisors. these rules should not become effective and office of early care and education shall issue [inaudible] there under until at least 90 days after the office of early care and education has submitted the wolves to the board of supervisors to any subsequent rules or rule amendment adopted by the early care and education to become effective immediate upon adoption. switches added that last part. any other questions bequest? can i bring
9:31 pm
up speakers right now >> yes sure. two questions will at this looking at this. the 90 days, why will he wait for 90 days? what's the 90 day buffer in therefore? >> basically we are asking the officer early care and education to do is him up with a game plan or a program that would with rules and so forth. so what i would like to do, i would like to weigh in on those by having a hearing on it within 90 days but we can't get together by 90 days is can go forward that same purpose and that's why we took out the amendment parts of it. that if they make amendment in the future, it's their call. >> got it. okay. the second one just to be clear is very supportive of what you're doing here. one question though on
9:32 pm
the page 3 i guess line 3, you talk like this is meant to be obviously infant and toddler with early learning. then we talked about the were talked about the criteria for determining which families tuition costs may be reduced by grant funds. that seems to be contrary to what i can >> let me explain what it is >> yes. >> with the office are early care and education would do is, again, make up the rules and that their funding will eventually go as a grant two providers at the childcare center or finally childcare. so it's not up to those centers to say well who am i going to give this reduction to. the program the office of old ece will make of those with rules. that's what same here. it's not
9:33 pm
like we give the grantor provider and they make up the rules. so this wait will be consistent. whatever gets the grants. >> okay. okay. thanks. t1 open up to public comment supervisor? >> sure. >> we will open this up to public comment. supervisor yee has the list of speaker cards. >> i have a list of speaker cards the first one being elizabeth newman in the department of status of women. go ahead. >> thank you. good morning supervisors. elizabeth newman with the department on the status of women in as supervisor yee mention we submitted a letter yesterday i did bring one copy to cement to the clerk and you have received copies provided by the supervisors staff. the department on the status of women works to address the economic political and social inequalities of women in san
9:34 pm
francisco and one of the issues we are frequently with regards to women in the workforce is the lack of access to childcare in the barrier that presents to their gainful employment and success in the workplace. in fact with the mayor lee and oakland mayor libby schaaf hosted the bay area women's summit childcare was cited as one of the top issues of concern for working women. so we know this issue is affecting so many families in san francisco. in fact according to the census bureau three quarters of families in san francisco with children under the age of six have both parents working. so it's a real necessity but we also know that often times women feel it's not a choice whether to return to the workforce after they have a child. so they often times will stay home because of the cost of childcare is so high. for these low income families moderate income families, any
9:35 pm
support to allow women to maintain their presence in the workforce will contribute to decreasing the wage gap get their lifetime earnings potential, their social security income when they retire. these are important factors that have contributed to women high rates of poverty and we also that single mothers that a three-time greater rate of property than other families. so they especially need help in order to continue their careers and to continue their education we really want to support supervisor yee efforts to expand access to quality care and any support to these families to be with to continue to work in attend school. thank you. >> thank you elizabeth. next is would be monica watterson cindy lynn. are they here? then, after that >>[calling public comment cards] >> good morning supervisors monica walters executive
9:36 pm
director youth and children's service. i'm here grateful support to supervisor yee and the other sponsors for putting forward this wonderful ordinance to create this special early learning scholarship of funds. it will serve literally hundreds of infants and dollars but we know there's so many more on the waitlist that supervisor yee said. i just want to say again we know quality early learning is the key to both academic success for children later on and also for helping families stay stable in housing in education and work in san francisco get all of our kids deserve to be especially our babies and toddlers, deserve to be in safe happy healthy settings and this is a wonderful addition to our support for san francisco families. so i thank you and strongly urge you to support this amendment. he was thank you ms. waters.
9:37 pm
>> >> thank you ms. waters >> hi. good morning my name is cindy lynn or manager ed children seven. i am here to speak in support of the early learning scholarship fund it every day in our office we low income and moderate income families come in seeking care so they can go back to work but the reality is there's not enough resources supporting the infants and toddlers in getting quality care. so we strongly strongly suggest that you support this so that we can support the youngest numbers of our community. thank you. >> then, after rosie-i don't see pat. pat sullivan. after rosie, heather the lotto and kitty lane.
9:38 pm
>> good morning, supervise. my name is rosie kennedy. i'm the director of the family childcare association of san francisco. the event has about hundred 30 license i might childcare providers with the capacity to care for about 5-6000 children on any given day. if for every dollar spent on preschool needs yields seven dollars in return of public benefit than every dollar spent on infants and toddlers will yield will be incalculably more. why? because the ride largest brain development occurs in the first three years. that means the quality of life and the success of that life inches on what happens in the first three years. that's very sobering. for those who know the development explosion that occurs in the first three years, we know that this is very long-overdue course correction in the early childhood education field. if we get the first three years right we will be able to do so
9:39 pm
much more with our four-year-olds and we will see a huge improvement in school readiness, college readiness, and so forth. we can take that to the bank it is guaranteed. i just want to make sure that we think supervisor yee for taking the lead supervisor kim supervisor avalos supervisor mar and supervisor tang. >> thank you, rosie. >> hello. my name is heather-is that of dr. holy family [inaudible]. we currently are in full support of this initiative and we really want to express that at the time we are in our budgeting possibly have to make choices on how many subsidize families we are going to serve and often it comes down to if we're going to be able to continue to support the low
9:40 pm
income and moderate families we are working with. this year we want to continue to do that we want to continue to support our community. i thought it was important to bring one of our parents and member of our workforce to explain the challenges we are facing. >> good morning everyone get my name is adele and i'm the infant and toddler site supervisor of family gay home this past january i became a mom. so i speak to you as an educator also a mother. while i was fortunate to be able to pay for my child at the center i worked a center that is quality early care, many san francisco families don't have this opportunity due to a multitude of obstacles that families face. the birth of a new baby should be an exciting and joyful time but for many low income and moderate income families is where stress big access to infant and father care due to lack of openings do the due to the cost of two or the biggest obstacles families face. currently holy family gay home has 100 families on the waitlist for infant rooms and only 12 available to offer annually. quality infant care is very expensive to provide an
9:41 pm
small group sizes. as a parent, skyrocketing tuition costs and lack of openings and a pushing families and a pushing families to make decisions for the child out of desperation and not what is good fit for their family. once a famous secures a spot they are forced to figure out how to stain their life in san francisco. but expensive rents and expensive childcare cost. many famous cannot make ends meet just to move out of the city. the infant toddler early learning scholarship fund attempts to remedy made a point i brought up. the funds allocated to bridge the gap between tuition cost and affordability for families not only consumers begin to make ends meet programs they begin to expand and offer much needed infant toddler care. is that for me-he was 30 seconds >> is a professional and mother i urge you to support this on. thank you >> thank you. >>[calling public comment cards]
9:42 pm
>> hello. i name is amelia--i am speaking to you today is a dumb woman who would love to raise her family in this city but currently doesn't know how that's possible. so the scholarship fund gives hope to us who want to be able to continue to live here. so thank you very much. >> thank you. i guess there are other speakers i would like to speak. go ahead and lineup. sarah, do you want to speak? >> good morning supervise. first i want to think supervisor 20stang avalos and other cosponsors of this important piece of legislation. it's a long time in coming good having done a lot of policy in
9:43 pm
planning for children and families over the last one the years i think it's important that we spent a lot of time and important work around focusing on preschoolers and i think we are beginning we are seeing the positive impacts of that. i think in terms of now focusing a little bit more attention on our younger children infant fathers is really key. the greatest gap we have in terms of services for these kids is in the area of infant dollars because i think without that focus of attention we have not made the same strides as we have for the broader services for kids in our city. i think it's especially as i hear from the actually really didn't think of this from the standpoint but from a woman standpoint the fact that often times when there are isn't the support around infantile or for young things is often the woman that has to make certain sacrifices in terms of continuing education or their jobs and things like that. in terms of being able to provide some support for their families. by having this infant toddler scholarship is key to that in terms of supporting
9:44 pm
women were completing their education as well as working to advance their careers. that way they're also making improvements in how they're able to provide support for their families. in terms of our supports printing toddlers i think the meeting kids earlier is best because 80% of child's brain is developed at the earliest age i think we need to focus more attention on that. >> thank you ms. wong. >> hi. good morning tony tyson see that coordinate. i'm higher on the efficacy back membership to fully supports these ordinance to establish the infant toddler early learning trust upon. >> tony for those the public that is listening, see back stance for what? >> childcare planning advisory council. made up of 25 numbers selected from the board of education and half from the board of supervisors. i know it's been stated earlier that
9:45 pm
there's about 1700 children on the waitlist but that doesn't include as were looking at the unmet needs of the city, there is approximately 7000 children infant and toddlers, that are eligible for subsidy and subsidize care. that's a huge number we are going to need to tackle moving forward and we do know this is a growing population the city as well. so again we fully support the adoption of the infant child father fun. thank you. >> thank you. >> good morning supervise. and staff. my name is sarah killed eight and i have the privilege of working with the san francisco childcare provider association and in that capacity the privilege again of going out and speaking to providers throughout the city. i was at a meeting this saturday the primary care associations in the 22 signatures you have in front of you is from that. i also want to share a bit of early childhood educator expertise in other candor at
9:46 pm
the end of a long meeting that is that early care and education providers are pleased to see the recognition that children are not born at the age of 3-4. we are glad to be seen that recognize publicly through this legislation and that families and children need support from infancy. providers also note childcare in the community-they care for children zero through kindergarten yet they infant toddler care and provisions for that the care is the most expensive and the provisions for that the lease. so we very much appreciate supervisor yee for bringing this to the board and kim avalos tang mar for supporting it. >> thank you.
9:47 pm
>> good morning supermarket i'm glenn dobson representing the opposite early care and education this morning. we very much look forward to partnering with supervisor yee and the rest of the board of supervisors on the implementation of early learning scholarship fund for infants and toddlers. we recently published our citywide plan early care and education and the goals of this scholarship fund sort of me were the priorities and recommendations that we have in our plan. we-the city has made incredible strides forward in serving preschoolers to our pfa program here in san francisco but we really want to see a continuity of care for 0-5-year-olds as part of our restructuring of the financing of the early care and education system here in san francisco. any additional funding and resources that we can have to serve 0-3 euros would be put to great use through the early learning scholarship model that we are currently planning for rolling out next year. so we look forward to a continued
9:48 pm
working together and thank you for this legislation. >> thank you. any other public comment? seeing none, mr. chairman >> we will now close of the comment >>[gavel] >> so what i would like to do is make a motion to pass the amendment >> second >> we have a motion to approve the minutes is circulated by supervisor trainees. we can take that without objection >>[gavel] >> i like a motion make a motion to pass this ordinance out of committee as amended to the full positive recommendation to the full board. >> second >> moved and seconded. we can also take that without objection. >>[gavel] >> i want to thank just really want to thank the public coming out for supporting this. this
9:49 pm
is really important for the families that are trying good they are struggling to make a living here and thanks for taking the time off from your job said i know you are really busy and hopefully we can in the future find the funding to support this. thank you very much. >> okay. with that speaker please call item number seven >> item number seven amending the emission of code poet prohibition on leasing the extraction of fossil fuel from city-owned land in acquiring inspection with an evaluation of constructed future uses for such land. >> supervisor avalos good to see you on that side of the wall. >> soon enough you may see me here. i thought i get a little practice. >>[laughing] >> wow >> tick-tock. i have an overhead i will be putting on a little bit in a second. but i
9:50 pm
thought i'd start off you. i will: there once i finish my presentation to begin with. thank you colleagues for hearing this item today. it's a very important idea we actually introduce this item back in march of this year. this money cosponsored it i don't have them all for me right now but essentially this item is really to respond to our global crisis of climate change. and while we are not quite at catastrophe we are on a trajectory that will get us to catastrophe if we do not start making changes in how we do our business. we need institutional change in our economy got institutional change in how we derive energy sources and this measure is part of that process. this item before us goes back to 1941
9:51 pm
when mr. alford furman bequeathed his estate to the city and county of san francisco with a direction that the revenues be split between the library and park and rec. this land is in current county close to bakersfield just north and maybe a little west of bakersfield. his estate included thousands of acres of land in fresno and kern counties including a working oilfield. i will start off with as we get into the climate portion with a number. 2°c. to prevent catastrophic climate change and eight impact on our climate, we need to limit the increase in global temperatures to 2°c below preindustrial
9:52 pm
levels. we have already hit about 1°c and are well on our way to going much higher to increase the global temperature above preindustrial levels. the climate summit in paris last year directed us,, countries around the world, to work to limit temperature increase 2°c the countries when it said further and said, 1.5° increase in temperature was what we should be going for. this year and i think was may of this year, both china and the united states ratified the agreement and we are still well behind where we need to be in terms of actually creating real change and that mechanisms to bring our temperatures and are emission levels down. we, in
9:53 pm
order to achieve these temperatures, we had to limit greenhouse gas emissions in the biggest greenhouse gas and we all know, is co2 carbon dioxide. it was in 2013 that we measured the first time that we had gotten above 400 ppm in carbon dioxide increase. now this year we had an average global level of 400 ppm. so we are still not having the impact that we want to have on achieving reductions in co2 that would help to limit global climate change. scientists also said that now the we hit 400 ppm as an average temperature it will take decades for us to get below that number. we are already seeing the impacts of this rise in global temperatures could we have
9:54 pm
dramatic climatic events, droughts that last a number of years, could we are in the middle of a unprecedented what's now a four-five-year drought in california with no and that's visible insight. our el niño event was much less dramatic than we expected it to be. it did not help us pull us out of our drought situation. we've also seen across the united states huge climactic events like hurricanes. hurricane katrina in 2005, hurricane cindy in 2012. most recently hurricane nephew which was >>[non-english speaker/ language] in cuba. we've seen across other, to events like typhoon i and in 2013. these are just happening over and over again and joined showing us we need to take real concerted action to make a
9:55 pm
difference. for the past 11 months the world has not a new monthly record high for temperature and every year it's the think nasa is predicting the global average temperature for 2016 will be well above 1°c in the preindustrial era. most scientists agree that the human sources of ghd are the sources of co2 are the main source for climate change. at the cop 21 conference 196 parts including the united states because you the paris agreement to reaffirm the goal of limiting global temperatures increase well above 2°c while urging efforts to limit the increase to 1.5° as i said earlier. climate scientists have published several studies of the world remaining carbon budget which is the maximum amount of future carbon that can be emitted into
9:56 pm
the atmosphere to provide a certain probable ability of limiting global temperature increase. here's my overhead. i'm not sure if that's appearing. okay. so this is representing our carbon budget. the 11,000 number is a big circle is the actual resources that are expected to be out there that will companies and scientists believe are out in the world. the reserves that's 3200, the smaller circle that's orange, is what a lot of fossil fuel companies have it then divide that they actually have in the reserves but they're not developed sites. they are not sites that are actually in the process of production but of that number, there's 942 developed reserves. those 11,000 numbers are in terms of
9:57 pm
co2, what we spent that we would emit from these sources. the carbon budget also says that in order to be able to stable over 2°c number we don't have a firm 43 i think that's the circle right ear, the green circle, 843 tons of single co2 that we can stay below the 2°c number. if we were to actually work to stay below the 1.5°c we would need to limit gigaton output of co2 to 393 gt. so you can see the numbers that we have already in terms of the reserves that are known are well above what we would have on hand that we can actually use to-we could burn to actually cook the planet to a level that we would not be able to maintain sustainable life.
9:58 pm
so it makes sense that we actually cannot burn our reserves that are known and we have to keep much of them in the ground and that is what this legislation is before us is about. in last year or maybe a couple years ago sen. jeff berkeley and i believe congress [inaudible] has introduced the cupid in the ground act to permit only credit new leases for the exhaustion of fossil fuels and also public lands in federal waters. while there has been no progress at the federal level because there hasn't been much progress on much of anything at the federal level with gridlock, many units about is a taken steps to keep fossil fuels in the ground. last year portland oregon voted unanimously to ban you fossil fuel in structure. in 2014 san benito county voters banned all
9:59 pm
tracking and steam injection was halted a proposed new oilfield to your pinnacle national park. in september the venetian city council voted unanimously to deny a valero crewed by rail project and in november monterey county will vote on a proposed ban on tracking and new oil wells that would impact the san ardo will feel. so this measure is san francisco adding itself to these limited efforts but hopefully they can steamroll into new ones. this ordinance and i have amendment today to actually i think that are not substantive-this ordinance will prohibit the city from entering into leases for the extraction of fossil fuel from city-owned land and for city property that is currently leased for fossil fuel the ordinance directs the director of real estate to create a just transition plan
10:00 pm
for the property. that's what we have for the new amendment that we have before us today. this new conduct an inspection of the property to a valuate the state of the property and ensure [inaudible] the lease is can climb with all investment was the just transition plan will also evaluate possible constructive future uses for the property including noble power generation, recreation, habitat restoration. the san francisco public utility commission has conducted a preliminary project feasibility study of the studies properties and current and fresno county and have determined that much of the property is well suited for solar power which will get the presentation here today. what is perhaps most exciting about this study is that this land could generate more revenue from a solar power from solar power that what we are currently receiving from chevron. this shows how we can transition from a fossil fuel based economy to a renewable energy based economy also creating new jobs. if you saw in the paper today, john updike
10:01 pm
who will be talking that talked about how the transition could actually be equal in terms of revenue that will come back to the city that has traditionally gone to our parks and libraries will be with to come back to the city to help those budgets. so we are not really losing anything while we're actually doing our part on global warming and creating new renewable sources. with that, i will seed the podium and go sit over where i usually sit. feed the podium to john updike director of real estate after him will be lori mitchell from the san francisco public utility commission and then jason freed executive office officer of alaska. others may want to join from recreation and park and library if they are hit. i do, colleagues. >> mr. updike. >>john updike director of
10:02 pm
wheels get thank you supervisor avalos for your leadership as well as your patience while we worked out what i think is a really excellentoutcome and going forward stance on this. as a supervisor mentioned, this property was received by the city in 1941 along with numerous other properties out of county and within the county stocks, bonds and another of other holdings from the estate which was the city and county of san francisco were grateful to receive. many of those assets were sold off. what was not sold was about a little over 1400 acres of land both fresno and kern county. of that acreage, really at issue here today is 800, particular acres within the current river oilfield thatcherite oil and gas revenues and since they've done so since at least 1963
10:03 pm
between the city and county and at that time shall rue a number of subsequent acquisitions and mergers, now today chevron. this current lease we have which was amended in the mid-1990s expires in 2020. so this is a perfect opportunity to have this discussion to align ourselves with what we do with this property in the future after that lease expiration. and prepare for the lease expiration. it also allowed us to take a second look at the remaining 600 acres not under lease to chevron but we believe today there a viable for solar good i will let laurie speak to that opportunity. i think what i want to bring to the attention of the committee is just that we've had an alignment of market forces. i think trading the perfect opportunity to move forward with this as proposed to you. that is that, not unexpectedly, the yields from the lease had been declining and of course
10:04 pm
the price of those yields on a per barrel basis have also been declining and so as indicated in the budget legislative analyst report we are now down to something in the low-mid- $300,000 per year revenue stream that that is our royalty revenue a little over 15% of the revenue earned it that's the royalty agreement we have with chevron could that is down from something over $800,000 per year. easily. that combined with crater efficiency of solar farms and the potential revenue changing in an upward direction we crossed paths. we're a few years ago this might not have been a smart this cool investment and there's no question it's a smart move to make to save the planet. that should be our goal. it's a nice
10:05 pm
bonus that we can do so in a way that is neutral to the departments receiving the revenue and as mentioned, the request is very specific. i want to note that. any revenues received a moscow to 50% to the library and 50% to the park and rec for the quote adornment of golden gate park unquote. that is the bequest requirements. so if we have continued revenue streams for whatever purposes it would be split 50-50 if there is a sale of some of the assets that might be an option with certain deed restrictions consistent with this legislation, those revenues, to come up with the flow. any those agreements would be subject to further board approval. this is just initial direction on this. with that information i will turn it over to lori and i assume you go over the amendment. thank you. >> thank you mr. updike. >> good morning. my name is elizabeth uber guidebook public
10:06 pm
utilities commission we were happy to assist in this project is john and the supervisor noted, we completed a feasibility study in june of this year look at the parcels of land not least by chevron and we concluded it is feasible to install solar on the sides. this number projects have artie been installed in the area and so it looks like a promising opportunity for the city. in addition to that feasibility report we work with a budget analyst office in determining what might be possible in terms of leasing this site to a solar developer. we advise them that generally leases for solar sites range from about $500-$15 and acre. that could be a potential revenue stream that would replace the oil revenues that the city is currently getting. obviously that's a large range and that's just an average age of the general solar project in california. we would recommend in order to understand the actual revenue might be that we
10:07 pm
potentially do an rfp to solar developers and see what they might pay to lease the site in that area which would give this a better idea of what revenues could be possible through that site. i think the other opportunity we see are the public utilities commission is if the city did we stood aside to a sober developer we would certainly be interested in understanding more details about that site potentially would've urges agreement would look like could obviously, you know the public utilities commission is out in the market procuring renewables for new clean power as half program. so it's definitely a site we would like to look at her cca into see that's feasible. obviously, that would depend on the economic centers of power purchase agreement. i think there are two separate issues but definitely some exciting opportunities here. i'm happy to answer any questions. >> thanks. colleagues from any questions because supervisor avalos?
10:08 pm
>> next up jason freed >> jason freed the second officer of last. thank you. you might remember in the backing in 2015 we issued a report from several which we will save [inaudible] job creation. how can utilize the. we're talking about here could potentially fit well into a job creation renewable energy program generation system for the clean power as a program. from that report, on the overhead, you will see there is if you look at generic utility scale projects that there is the ability to create jobs by the simple production of it there's a long-term maintenance in the operation of the site that also does create small numbers still does create a number. you do
10:09 pm
have that. this would be something that fall under the california section which is much better areas we will get a better better bang for your buck with a job creation doing it down there. when you look at potential regional and state projects that we do look at at the time was again on the overhead you will see there is work job creation available through programs that we look at. these projects were actually not included in that list partly because we were not really looking at that attempted trafficking about this particular item wasn't on the list of things to be reviewed. so we would encourage you to look a very serious look as mitchell just mentioned from sf pc is a lot more work than is to be done. i think that done a lot of great work that shown there is some feasibility to this project at one of the things i would potentially look at not just selling to clean power as that which is key and critical. we would not want necessarily potential solar down there that might be too much solar in one location for our program but there's a lot of programs out there. you've got not just the ones in
10:10 pm
northern california here your lancaster which is a program that several other in southern california don't make a good fit for their program as well. not only should be looking to hydrate the this program for ourselves but how do we maybe help sober neighboring programs around cca is was was open market figure out what the right balance how do we make sure were getting enough money for park and rec and the library through this is a stable funding source and how do we also make sure we are helping other sister programs like clean power as a. if you have any questions or be happy to answer them >> thank you. we are also seeing there is a greater alignment. certainly there's more cca appearing. they're doing clean power as a type programs. this a greater alignment among them to actually coordinate resources as well. >> yes. they actually just formed cal-susie at california community choice association. it's all the currently running programs are part of that and there's actually looking to join that are in the process of creating a program. so there's
10:11 pm
deftly a lot more alignment within the state among the cca programs there's actually ag barbara hill is the president of that association. >> rates. it's good to know district and and district 11 are closest to fresno and kern county so we will probably see a lot of residents from those districts get these jobs. right? >> that's quite possible although that's a little bit of drive to get down to kern county >> [inaudible]. great. thank you. do we have anyone from the park and rec department or library here? that's all the presenters i have for the legislation and chairman farrell if you want to go on to the budget analyst reports and go on to public comment it spews first of all supervisor tang >> i just want to thank you supervisor avalos for your efforts on guide these really wonderful that we are able to find the perfect timing and never to be doing this could just want to commend you for that. also want to share with you and hopefully you and
10:12 pm
others can go on what i consider as sister effort is we have called a hearing and put out a directive, a goal, to transition our cities city hall vehicle fleet the light duty vehicle fleet, to one of percent electric by the year 2020 at swifty huge goal of mine. >>[applause] sorry chairman farrell. applause allowed. interest them from personally wanted to be able to drive electric there's a lot of areas for me living in multiunit buildings and so we figured that we would start with our own looking internally at city hall and how it is we can address that there would really transitioning up off lines onto also fuels and so forth. again want to thank supervisor avalos on this in a happy to cosponsor the ordinance. >> thank you supervisor tang. >> great. thank you for going to the budget analyst i do
10:13 pm
want to recognize the work that john updike and real estate office as well as san francisco public utility commission as well for their work in helping us to find great solutions to revenue that could be not lost a coming from other sources to maintain our funding levels for the library and park and rec. also all the luck work you've done in looking at this property could originally, the recognition of this property came from someone outside of city hall from jeff altman who's here in the audience was doing a lot of his research and he said fantastic in doing that and supporting a lot of the work that the air district we do in other bodies are doing with climate change. i just want to thank him for finding this and bring it before us did thank you. >>[applause] >> all right. mr. rose one of you go to your report for item 7, please? >> yes mr. chairman and members of committee supervisor avalos, on page 12 of our report we report as shown in table one and that is on page
10:14 pm
13 of our report, from 2011-2015 under the lease between chevron and the city for the use of the current oilfields chevron played the city will see revenues totally totaling $3 million and this ordinance would result in termination of this lease on march 31 2020 and the lease expires at which point the city would no longer receive royalty revenues. we also note as shown in that table 1 that in 2015 as mr. update has already stated, the city received 319,000 so that's a significant decrease from the 800-two $900,000 the city was previously receiving. we note that termination of the lease would result in a revenue loss based on those two 2015 revenues of $319,000 per year
10:15 pm
at which 159.798 would be reduced revenues to the recreation and park department in 159 would be reduced revenues to the library and that's in accordance with the terms and conditions. our recommendation is we consider this to be a policy matter for the board of supervisors. >> thank you much mr. rose picked collies from any questions for budget analyst? at this point will open up to public comment it under this number of speaker cards. i given them to supervisor avalos two can call them in order. public comment is now open >> i will call your names and if you would line up on the wall with a windows are and more or less the order your names are called. >>[calling public comment cards]
10:16 pm
>> good morning sunrise. eric brooks how corny for energy choice san francisco clean energy advocates and san francisco green party. this one's pretty much i know brain. learning that the city and county of san francisco was making money off of fossil fuel was something out of the sorrow world and it's good kudos to jed and 350 bay area for finding out about this. was incredible work in this is incredibly important. on the substance of the matter is up i would just strongly urge that as we move forward with this we do not sell off any this land and we don't even lease it to renewable energy producers let's make these projects public projects the way they ought to be. we should own any
10:17 pm
solar panels or wind turbines were nobles, we should add battery storage of course which is a crucial component to all these things should be owned by the community and by your note are public utilities commission of clean power as a program or maybe one other thing could be another committee choice program but i think we should own it is a community p i believe one or two of the original solar panels that were created over 70 years ago are still running. so we actually started leasing this property and leasing it if we actually build our own solar panels and own them we are looking at decades to more than a century of revenue for park and rec and the library that we would not get as much revenue from just we seen it out to corporations. so i would urge you to continue in that way on these and make them public projects. >> hello chairman farrell and
10:18 pm
supervise. thank you so much. mine is jed holtman am a policy analyst for 350 bay area when the leaders of 350 san francisco working for gbh reductions in the nine county bay area. it was a move statewide to restrict tracking and looking extreme extraction looked at how san francisco might be able to be involved through a hunch and some public records request found this kind of open secret in the city about this request. i would like to thank supervisor avalos is others for picking this up and doing tons of work to move this forward was of fossil free vinton i like to think the department of real estate and qc for their work in our parks apartment to be funded by
10:19 pm
fossil fuels which are going to radically change our parks. our city has electricity resource plan calls for 1% jg free electricity by 2030. if starter clean power as a program which is providing cleaner power for cheaper than pg&e and the option for 1% removal power. our pension system for city workers and retirees has divested from coal stocks may $100 million fossil free investment so our city is really moving towards becoming fossil free and this is an obvious move to make on that angle. more broadly, supervisor avalos regimen must keep fossil fuels in the ground. even burning only those fuels of coal oil and gas currently being extracted would push us past the international carbon budget that we need to maintain. this information is just published a month or two ago. this is very timely. we will need to keep fossil fuels in the ground elsewhere but it has
10:20 pm
to start somewhere and we can survive putting our money where our mouth is it. i urge you to support this measure note that the full board. we can get equivalent so more revenue from renewables and create jobs. thank you. >> hello supervisor. my name is brett fleishman senior analyst for the international climate focused on profit 350.org. i first want to thank supervisor john avalos and jeb altman for pushing this forward. just to quickly underscore some of the points already been made, here on record, changes happening. it's happening out we are empirically out of time to address this issue. in peer clique, aside, from a community perspective, the time for climate action has passed long ago. the new letter i want to put on this looking at this issue the climate movement globally and nationally, is that climate action at the
10:21 pm
local and city government level is picking up in a big way in the nation is watching san francisco today and on november 1 using this as a model to be spread throughout the globe. so i wish you the best of luck. thank you. >> thank you. before the next speaker i do want to say that germany pollock by legislative aide in my office, has done a lot of the legwork on this phenomena thank you for his work and of course i want to think-tank for cosponsoring today. >> thank you. my name is jean sue good morning everyone. i'm with the center for biological diversity is also proud san francisco resident. i'm here today to urge you to please vote in favor of this incredible ordinance i just want to take a step back and actually help us connect the dots between what's going on globally and locally. i think at times when everybody thinks about climate change it is something that's extremely
10:22 pm
existential and what difference can we make here on a local level. let me tell you that difference is enormous. i went to the paris agreement last year and next week i will be in morocco as well. there i will be meeting with fellow activists from five continents around the world. where fighting fossil fuel divestment of away from zambia to the philippines to brazil and here in san iraq in north america. there, what we are all seen them on every single level governments are kicking the can to other governments. under global level they're trying to kick international level. on the national level are trying to kick it to state levels in the us and the state levels are kicking into local levels good i'm telling you that here today there is a huge difference you can make because you are being empowered to actually do something with the rubber needs the road finally. where every other government above you simply cannot and we as citizens activists are trying to
10:23 pm
talk to every single level and keep going whether it's going to be in morocco next week and whether it is here today. i just want to emphasize what so important that all these community activists are here in front of you today and elsewhere around the world. it is because the effects of climate change are twofold. wherever we see fossil fuels. being extracted. the first is that on frontline communities, especially here in california, whenever you have the tracking that's coming going on in kern county or the oil extraction in general that were fighting against all of that equates to toxics in our air to the earthquakes that we feel into the water that is being contaminated the people are exposed to. >> take you. thank you so much >> thank you. we urge that you vote, yes, today could >> thank you. i will read a few more cards. the c >>[calling public cards]
10:24 pm
>> hello to my name is sally northup, thank supervisor avalos and speak as a citizen of the san francisco could i live in the outer sunset could i've lived here since 1980 and is a grandmother citizen of san francisco i and earth citizen i believe passionately in the necessity of keeping fossil fuels in the ground. please, vote for this. thank you >> thank you next speaker, please. >> good to see you all. steve jones biological diverse. since i left him and doing a lot of work on helping with climate change issue in transition to the clean energy future we need. public lands and waters is important place to do that. san francisco can show real leadership in on the climate
10:25 pm
change issue instead of profiting from our overuse of fossil fuels. as supervisor avalos said hindsight is really clear that if we are going to avoid cataclysmic climate change scenarios we leaned to leave untapped fossil fuels in the ground and public lands and waters the perfect place to do that. so honestly get a nice benefit here if you're serious about clean power as set and creating global portfolio for the citizens of san francisco, there's a great opportunity you really can't let pass by. i really hope you approve this. thanks. >> hello. i'm rose brown with the center for biological diversity and i'm kind of embarrassed and i'm embarrassed into full. one is i didn't know that the city of san francisco owned oil and was extracting oil and two, i am embarrassed the city of san francisco owns this oil and extracting this old. so i'm depending on our
10:26 pm
residence here in san francisco who are here today to speak up and depending on her board of supervisors to speak out and stop this practice before it continues. particularly, at this moment when now more than ever we have an opportunity to address climate change before it gets even more of a crisis situation. that was a. i'm depending on you and we are all here with you so let's do it. thanks >> thank you. yes, jed holton blew our minds. next speaker, please. >> hello. my name is asher
10:27 pm
clean energy complainant with the center for biological diversity. this ordinance is a terminus opportunity to be a national leader both in the fight against climate change but also the work too great a just transition and robust energy economy group i urge you to support it. the city could become a beacon for municipalities cross california to divest from the toxic and dangerous practice of tracking in current county is awful. if you ever been there it's horrible. really across america to move from a climate chaos scenario to clean and just energy future. with this ordinance the city can transition their lease from dirty extraction work with the utility scale for the company to build solar on this degraded land and offer jobs in transition opportunities to those impacted by the closure of the oil fields. since the lease ends in 2020 we have four years since california is a solar leader in four years the solar industry is can even be stronger in the city's land is prime real estate this exponentially growing industry. the sf puc has evaluated: and according to mr. updike the city can move forward on leasing those acres for solar power
10:28 pm

10:36 pm
name is chris cox began here as an individual resident of davis california. i would like to commend chairman farrell and the other members of the committee for taking this important step to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and bring us closer to a trajectory that will bring us on the 2° scenario. at the same time i think it's really important we address the elephant in the room which is scrabble transport in the city according to the bay area air quality management district transportation account is the largest was a greenhouse gas emissions accounting for 40% of all emissions in the bijan. i think of supervisors really want to take a leadership role in climate change it's important we address this. i think there's two key action. one is that we need a radical change in the land-use policy in the city that we need to allow the developer to more affordable housing near transit to the people can live close to their work. they can walk and bike to the workplaces and places of school. instead of having to drive in from the far-flung stretches of the
10:37 pm
region. second, i think we need to do a lot more to make it easier for people to walk cycle, use transparent need to reallocate or road space to public transport into nonmotorized transport. we need to redouble the efforts on the bus rapid transit project which is been moving but moving very slowly. i think if we really address these issues then the city can take a much better leadership role. thank you >> thank you very much. next speaker, please. >> hello. chairman farrell and members of the board. my name is daisy-a resident of san francisco i'm speaking in support of this measure. think you for your courageous leadership in really leading the nation and our state in

10:39 pm
whether their fractal and appeared we'll production and dozens of these chemicals around the prop 65 artists and agents. these are getting into our water supply but these are getting into people's bodies and their ashley getting onto our crops now. we need to protect the health of the community and current county protect the conscience of san francisco residence and the future of the children were going to be libraries and parks again this monday the money come from clean source. so thank you for your leadership and please, pass this. >> thank you very much. next speaker, please. >> if there's any other members of the public would like to comment be please let up on the wall or coach the podium after the speaker. thank you >> hello. my name is odell framer resident of san francisco for over 40 years. i urge you to support pass this measure supervisor avalos laid out the science behind the

10:41 pm
built environment, construction, and every other activity that the city is involved in. the police, please think of the climate in all your decisions. we are going to have to move forward in every way possible to limit carbon in the honesty of. thank you. >> thank you very much. next speaker, please. >> hi there came a name is ben becker. i'm the cochairman of the san francisco sparrow and devil i like to echo the sentiments everybody said here already. the position of the bernie kratz is the economic value or potential value of the oil in the fields is round 300 $20,000 per year. san francisco is a very wealthy and progressive community we control budget of nearly i'm sorry-$10 billion per year.

10:44 pm
think we have to work out whether any given situation if at some point in the future qc wanted to extract fossil fuel on the property with her that would actually-whether complying with the ordinance would undermine their charter authority. i'm not sure the circumstances that would cause us to say, you don't have to file the ordinance but it probably depends on the time >> so qc am curious whether other examples so department would seek an exemption? are there any others? >> i would not know >> the port has inclusive authority over this party the mta has exclusive 40 over its
10:45 pm
property. the reason we included this provision in the ordinance is that when we are regulating the use of property in this way we try to be explicit that they are just some places where the board cannot legislate. we're it is really up to that the commission would exclude the control and we wanted to be clear about that in the ordinance. >> okay. i hope from a policy perspective these departments will understand we sorely don't want them to engage in extracting fossil fuels even if they have authority >> i can imagine our department doing a bit might happen in a post-apollo apocalyptic road work habits and arab and hopefully that will never happen. >>[laughing] >> mr. update >> i can top that supervisor avalos but yes, we did look at all the county as is not only to look at existing operations but potentially updates. we do not under the file proper the fall under this category with the extraction. as you know we do have some quarry mining efforts within the puc's out of
10:46 pm
county acids but i don't see that is in conflict with this issue and actually if you recall, the amendment to those leases were actually very favorable relative to being sensitive to climate action plan. so i don't think we see an existing conflict and as deputy city attorney mentioned, highly unlikely in the future. >> good question. >> thank you >> okay. >> great. supervisor tang thank you for cosponsorship adding her name here again and again i want to the governments of the public for coming today and for your work in helping to advance this legislate. vertically want to thank jed holtzman from 350 p fan in bay area for your work and of course germy pollock in my office with done an outstanding job shepherding this through. these past few months. mr.

between me to pay our contractors and when we need to get reimbursed from our funding partners. the major sources of funding for the program include the partner contributions and thank you to the board and the city for their participation in the seven party agreement, which secured the needed funding for the project. state funding from the california high-speed rail authority am a federal formula funds, and fta core capacity grants. all funds have been secured except for the sfgh which is expected by january 15. the contract for both the infrastructure project and the vehicles has been awarded, have been awarded, and both products have been issued limited notices to proceed to advanced design work on the project. full notice to proceed in construction and manufacturing activities are expected to start in the spring of 2017.

full revenue service electrified revenue service on the peninsula is expected by the end of 2021. the proposed short-term interim financing is in negotiated transaction discussions were held with a number of financial institutions over the course of several months. six banks were invited to submit bids received bytes from two jp morgan has been selected as the preferred lender. the finalizing the agreement and the details of the agreement renegotiations currently. the expectation is that the jp board will be approving that agreement in november. the interim financing has been reviewed and discussed with the comptroller's office and the mayors office of public finance could we recommend you approve the proposed financing capacity in accordance with government code section 6586 and 6586 .5 and i'm happy to
11:13 pm
answer any questions whether it relates to the financing or the project itself. i also joined by financial staff from caltrain it is any diesel financial questions. >> supervisor tang >> thank you. can you go back to the issue of the federal grants and for the public purposes can you tell us how much we are excited out of that? >> yes. we been working with fta or full funding grant agreement for the last two years intensely and we are in the last stages of securing all the necessary approvals for that grant. the total is $647 million. so it's roughly about 30% of the total project cost. >> so i don't know how
11:14 pm
contrary view about getting the grant and what would happen if eventually we are not able to secure that? >> we have a substantial amount of support for this project both from local delegations, federal delegations, from the fta itself and as i said we have been working through the details with them on the all the various documentation requirements to be able to qualify for the grant and there is a 30 day congressional review period that we expect will begin about mid december and we are just about at the closing and of including all of the necessary work that's needed , coordination work for with fta to recommend the grant >> so are we feeling so confident about this that we don't have any sort of backup or contingency plan? >> we are feeling very confident about it. based on the work we have done with fta.
11:15 pm
the limited notices to proceed having issued specifically for the design elements of the project. so if for some reason the full funding grant agreement and not materialize the wasn't another alternative we would be able to terminate those contracts. that is not the expectation. we have further backup plans in the event that the full funding grant agreement is delayed beyond what we have now as march 1 for the notice to proceed for construction could we have enough money for fiscal year 17 through the other sources to cover but at this point there is no reason for us to have any expectation other than we are going to receive that grant. >> all right, thank you.
11:16 pm
>> okay. any further questions? we will move on to public comment. anyone was to comment on item 13? seeing none, public comment is closed. >>[gavel] >> i will make a motion than to forward this to ordinance or resolution to the full board with a positive recognition >> moved and seconded. we can take it without objection. >>[gavel] >> mdm. clerk any other business in front of us be was that is the end of business >> thanks everybody. we are adjourned. >>[gavel] >>[adjournment] >> >> >>

11:35 pm
>> hi everybody, we down here at the /ep is a center which is our pop up space down here in san francisco where we operate a store front to educate the policy from the home owner who has center which is our pop up space down here in san francisco where we operate a store front to educate the policy from the home owner who has never done anything in the house to the most advanced structure engineers we have working around here. we we're going to here from kelly to talk a little bit about san francisco. how are you doing kelly? >> very well, thank you for having us here. >> in front of us, we have a typical soft story building. when i see this, i think this is some of the most beautiful architecture our city has. a lot of people don't know these are problematic buildings. why don't you tell us about some of the risks he we have in these buildings? >> soft stories are vulnerable in past earthquakes and the northridge earthquake to this type of
11:36 pm
building and character of building. when we talk about the soft story, what we're talking about is generally a ground story that has less wall or other /pwraeugs to resist the lateral forces that might be imposed by the earthquake. so we're looking for something that is particularly weak or soft in this ground story. now, this is a wonderful example of what some of the residential buildings that are soft stories in san francisco look like. and the 1 thing that i would point out here is that the upper force of this building have residential units. they have not only a fair amount of wall around the exterior of the building but they also have very extensive walls in the interior and bathrooms and bedrooms and corridors and everything that has a certificate amount of brazing yea it's significantly less country
11:37 pm
/srabl in those stories. now very often, we get even a garage or storage or sometimes commercial occupancy in this ground story. that very often not only has a whole lot less perimeter wall but it often has little or no wall on the interior. that wall is the earthquake bracing and so he see very significant bracing in the top floor and very little on the bottom. when the earthquake comes and hits, it tries to push that ground floor over and there's very little that keeps it from moving and degrading and eventually /paoerblly keeping it from a collapse occurring. so we know they're vulnerable because of this ground story collapsing >> is this only a problem we see in sentence france? san francisco? >> no, this is certainly a national problem. more acute in western
11:38 pm
but more up to california, washington, moving out into other states. this kind of building exist and this kind of building is vulnerable. >> when you're involved with the community safety, this is a different way of thinking about these types of things. we had a community group of over 100 people involved and upper 1 of them. tell us about * how that conversation went. why did we decide as a city or a community to start fixing these types of buildings? >> there were a lot of aspects that were considered well beyond just the engineering answer that these are vulnerable. and that effort brought in a lot of people from different aspects of the community that looked at the importance of these buildings to the housing stock and the possible ramifications of losing this /houbgs in the case of an earthquake. the financial implications, the historic preserve vacation s implication as you mentioned, these are very
11:39 pm
handsome looking buildings that are importance to the tourist city ask which make san francisco something that people are interested from outside in coming and visiting. >> it's such animation story when you think about the 10 years that the community spent talking about this /seurb but we actually did something about it. now we have an order unanimouses put in place to protect 100,000 residents in san francisco and retrospective in 2020. so on behalf of residents and employees in san francisco, we want to say thank you for the work you've done in pushing this forward and making people more aware of these issues. >> and it was a fantastic community effort. >> so in an earth quake, what happens in these kinds of buildings? >> what happens when an earthquake comes along is it moves the ground both horizontally and vertically.
11:40 pm
it's mostly the horizontal that we're worried about. it starts moving the building back and forth and pushing on it. when you see i'm pushing on it, the upper stiff of the wall stay straight up but the lower floors, they actually collapse just like i did there. >> luckily, we can put this building right back up where it came from so it's a lot easier. now kelly, obviously these aren't real frame walls here but when you talk about buildings, what makes the property for stiff? >> the easiest and most cost-effective type of bracing you can put in is either put in a brand new wall or to potentially go in and strengthen a wall that's already there where you don't need to have an opening is where you maybe have a garage door or access to commercial space, you might go to a steel frame or other types of bracing systems that
11:41 pm
provides the strength and stiff if necessary but at the same time, allows continued use of that area. but some combination of walls or frames or other tools that are in the tool kit that can bring the building up to the strength that's required in order to remove the vulnerability from the building so that when ground shaking comes, it in fact is a whole lot more resistant and less vulnerable. ideally, this story down here would be made as strong and stiff as the floors above. >> if i'm a property owner, what is the first thing i should do? >> the first thing you should do is find professional that can come in and help you evaluate your building in order to, 1, figure out that indeed it does need to be retro fitted and 2, give you some idea of what that retro fit might look like. and
11:42 pm
third, evaluation and design to help you determine the retro fit requirement. >> well kelly, i can't thank you enough for being here today. thank you so much for your wealth of information on how we can take care of our soft story problem in san francisco. and you the viewer, if you have any questions, please feel free to visit our website .
